WEST SEATTLE CRIME WATCH: Package thief in pickup

The report and videos are from Michael in Arbor Heights:

Caught this guy on our Nest camera stealing a package from our neighbor’s porch (Friday) at 2:15 PM in a fancy newer-style gray Ford truck. I’ve attached two separate videos, one showing the truck drive into frame, one showing the theft take place. Neighbor has or will be reporting to police. This happened on 32nd Ave SW in between 106th and 105th in Arbor Heights.

Hopefully someone will recognize the truck. Perpetrator was a white male, stocky, bald.

MBL also says social-media discussion of his clips yielded an opinion that it could be the same person/truck shown in this video from last month, recorded by a witness as a woman tried to stop a truck after her purse had been stolen from her car outside Admiral Safeway.

    That grey F250/350 Super Duty looks like the one that purse snatcher guy at Admiral Safeway was driving.  Similar/same year and color.   It’s not a newer Ford, it’s about 15-20 years old.

    The link for the video from last month doesn’t work.

    @WSB could you please help me track down the case number for the purse snatching    

    • WSB September 15, 2019 (1:01 pm)

      It wasn’t a purse snatching (which is a robbery). It was a car prowl (guy stole purse out of car). (ETA) Probably this one: 19-310022

    This man seems to be desperate and dangerous and I can’t believe that the police haven’t picked him up yet.  Even though the video from the August 20 smash and grab was a bit fuzzy on the plate (due to the motion) but it appeared to be a temporary tag (if it’s real) with an expiration date of today (09.15.2019) and the number looked to me as if it was 1271596A. The dark gray Ford F-350 Super Duty truck appears to be missing its grille and has custom wheels and a tow hook.

      The truck now has a grill.  The wheels are very distinctive.  This guy is still out prowling around.

    I think its the same guy that broke into my apartment building and stole my motorcycles.https://westseattleblog.com/2019/08/west-seattle-crime-watch-2-motorcycles-stolen-in-admiral/
